He is truly a person of high integrity and strong moral fiber and it was God's blessing that I met him. His knowledge and skill is genuine and I know he has earned everything he has done. It is not always that you meet a man who truly is genuine in his knowledge of the martial arts and you, as members and students are very fortunate to have him in your life.

God Bless you always,

Grandmaster Michael Patrick

Mike Patrick has a diverse background in both practical reality-based personal defense and Martial Arts.

He began his Martial Arts training in a small dojo (karate school) in East Tennessee. It was so small it was even named "Hole-In-The-Wall Dojo." The training was traditional Isshin-ryu Karate with a heavy focus on basics and kata (forms).

Upon becoming only the second student to earn a Black Belt in the dojo, he began to add to his training with a variety of Martial Arts. Though, never leaving his original focus of Isshin-ryu, he was able to incorporate elements of Modern Arnis knife and stick fighting, kobudo (traditional Okinawan weapons), Tai Chi Chuan, and more, to the Isshin-ryu Karate that he was working so hard to master.

In time, his instructor, Max Jones, recommended that he continue his training with Allen Wheeler who was very involved with adding Pressure Point knowledge to the Isshin-ryu system. As fate would have it, Grand Master Wheeler invited Grand Master Rick Moneymaker to begin teaching a series of Master Series Seminars at his Knoxville dojo. Mr. Patrick attended one of those and was immediately 'hooked' on Torite Jutsu.

After the seminar, Mr. Patrick approached Grand Master Moneymaker and inquired about books and materials to help him learn the art. At the time, the only sources available were Acupuncture books and charts. From these, Mr. Patrick acquired quite a library and invested a lot of his own money to travel and learn from the Dragon Society International. Grand Master Moneymaker agreed to take him on as a long-distance student and through many seminars, phone conversations, letters, and such, Mr. Patrick eventually became proficient in the art of Torite Jutsu.

After a few years, Grand Master Moneymaker invited Mr. Patrick to Texas to a DSI International Convention as a guest instructor. It was at this Convention that Grand Masters Moneymaker and Muncy awarded Mr. Patrick the coveted title of Master and Certified Instructor in the art of Torite Jutsu.

From that time on, Master Patrick has worked tirelessly to enrich as many students as he can reach with the art of Torite Jutsu. He has taught internationally at seminars and conventions, published books, produced videos, and more to get word out to enrich as many people as possible.

Because of his early training within the DSI and the lack of published materials, Master Patrick fully understands the challenges of learning an art such as this and the great cost of collecting the necessary books, travel, and not to mention difficulty of digesting the information. It is this awareness that led him to become one of the first DSI Instructors to publish a range of books and videos on the art. In his videos and seminars, Master Patrick is fond of taking a technique and spending hours explaining and demonstrating the intricacies of the technique in what the DSI calls "Players to the Game."

Participants at his seminars often remark at not only his depth of knowledge, but also his ability to translate complex techniques and principles in a warm, friendly, and often humorous manner which sets all at ease and provides a great environment for learning.

Since that time, Master Patrick went on eventually earn a 6th Degree Black Belt from his instructor Allen Wheeler in the art of Isshin-ryu Karate, earning the title of "Master" in that art.

He has been recognized by both the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame as well as the United Karate Systems of America Hall of Fame for his accomplishments in the Martial Arts and was inducted as "Instructor of the Year."

To continue his passion for protection of others and his desire to give them the ability to defend themselves and their families, he founded a system called Personal Defense Tactics which he has taught to individuals of all ages and abilities. This system eventually evolved into a more robust system through his partnership with Rick Moneymaker. Together, they developed a new system, known as CombatiX™ which is the practical application of their many years of experience in testing what works in real world environments. These techniques have been taught to and studied by individuals from a number of law enforcement agencies and military groups.

What makes his research different is his earnestness in testing what he teaches. In CombatiX™, the motto is "If we don't test it, we don't teach it!" So many Martial Arts instructors take what they are taught for granted without questioning its origins. By testing these techniques, he was able to determine what worked and what didn't. Only those techniques that really work are kept and form the core of CombatiX™.

Moreover, he added Firearms training to his skills. After studying the methods of various instructors, he came to realize that many were not compatible with the affects of Body Alarm Reaction. This lead to the development of the CombatiX™ shooting platform which is integrated with the universal platform, leading to a consistent and cohesive system. Today CombatiX™ is continuing to spread and being met with enthusiastic reception in both the Martial Arts and tactical communities.

His videos and books have gone throughout the world and thousands of students have been enriched by his efforts.

Mike Patrick is available for seminar instruction and is willing to travel anywhere in the world to share his expertise. He would love to speak with you and help you and/or your students or officers to continue your training and take it to a new level.

Testimonials for Grandmaster Michael Patrick:
"This is the next generation of Dragon Society International...the next level coming...Master Patrick has done an excellent job incorporating the Torite (Pressure Point) sciences into his understanding of all Martial Arts systems and provides excellent instruction to students of all styles and ranks.  From my extensive travels I have found that less than 2% of the Black Belts in the world can instruct at his level…Master Michael Patrick lays to rest any questions as to why pressure points work.  His extensive research and analysis will certainly convince even the most adamant naysayers in the martial arts world.  His work shows beyond a shadow of doubt that the techniques of old were based upon a proven science and that they were duplicatable if one takes the time to research and expends the effort to practice this ancient art."
Grandmaster Rick Moneymaker

"I believe that any martial artist can study [his] information and gain useful insights to make their art more effective."
Grandmaster Tom Muncy

"[Master Patrick possesses] super secret fighting knowledge...that would only be imparted to a select few...The techniques and methods described…are things that will make any martial arts practitioner a lethal fighting machine."
Sigung Rich Mooney

"The extent of the research that Mike has put into [his] work is evident to any who have been involved in these areas of study for any length of time."
Sean Fitzpatrick

"Master Michael Patrick has once again shown that he has an incredible in-depth knowledge of the points, but not only that, he is able to teach this information in such a way that all levels of skill will benefit.  A true mark of excellence."
Master Steve Burton

"Master Michael Patrick…has raised the bar and set the American martial arts frontier ablaze ... [he] does an exceptional job of conveying the complexities of combative science to enhance your martial skills by introducing to the public an ingenious method of technique analysis and application developed by the Dragon Society International called 'Players to the Game.' "
Master Alex Ormaza

"Your 'Players to the Game DVD Volume One' is one of the most comprehensive recorded documents of 'The Players' to date."
J. Llanos

"[Master Patrick] is the guy when it comes down to being able to teach concisely and accurately…The trouble with other teachers (nice blokes and great martial artists I should add) is that teaching the arts is a skill in its own right and some of these people just don't have the skills well enough developed to teach and maybe in some cases don't want to reveal 'secrets' fully…Mike is a great instructor - in person I bet he'd be awesome - he understands the necessity for both large picture and small detail and can convey it excellently.  All of the questions I’ve asked others were answered by Mike…"
